Call to honour space aliens • Thursday March 13, 2003

BBC, Mar. 11, 2003

A bill has been put forward in the United States to designate a day to honour space aliens.

Dan Foley, a Republican from Roswell, New Mexico, the area where some say aliens landed, proposed an “Extra-terrestrial Culture Day” every second Thursday in February.

Mr Foley asked for the bill “in recognition of the many visitations, sightings, unexplained mysteries and technological advances… of alien beings” in New Mexico.

The legislation aims to “enhance relationships among all the citizens of the cosmos, known and unknown,” he added.

E.T. ‘honoured’

Characters made famous in sci-fi movies, such as E.T. in Steven Spielberg’s 1982 film, would be honoured on such a day.

Roswell, New Mexico, the self-appointed alien capital of the world, is where UFO enthusiasts say an alien spaceship crash-landed in 1947.

In July, a week-long festival which boasts speakers on extra-terrestrial life and UFOs attracts thousands of visitors.

Mr Foley said by creating a day of alien celebration – interest in aliens and economic benefit – can be spread to the rest of the state.

Visitors would be encouraged to visit the alleged site of a unidentified flying saucer crash in San Juan County, near Aztec.

“If we can capitalise on something that did or did not happen in 1947 then it can help the entire state,” he said.

He also added that the bill was introduced to entice film companies to move to Santa Fe.
